Yesterday, Facebook revealed that it has 901 million users and is well on the way to hitting the 1 billion mark by the end of this year. The information came from a statistic in the company?s amended S-1 filing. Other interesting details of note in the filing were that the social networking website receives 3.2 billion comments and 300 million new photos added on a daily basis. The filing also indicates that out of the 901 million users, 526 million were active users who accessed the social networking site/app on a daily basis. Besides that, a reported 488 million people used Facebook-related mobile products in March.
Intel?s launching of the range of processors codenamed Ivy Bridge was accompanied by rumors about production issues which could lead to a shortage in supply of the processors at its initial stages. An article by Digitimes claims that the shortage would be severe enough that Intel will be unable to ?satisfy downstream PC vendors? strong demand.? The article goes on to say that the situation would resolve itself in May or June when Intel launch an additional 13 processors on top of the 14 that were launched yesterday consisting of nine i5 versions and 5 mobile CPUs.
It has long been rumored that the successor to Samsung?s Galaxy S2 would be the Galaxy S3. It is after all the logical progression, but given that Samsung has not officially outed anything yet, plus with their website teasing about ?The Next Galaxy?, it was hard to actually confirm the name of the company?s next flagship phone. However it looks like Samsung might have accidentally let the name slip on its Google Play app description page.
Earlier today, the Korean company launched the official Unpacked app on the Google Play store and it seems that thanks to the sharp eyes of many, the ?galaxy s3? name was actually revealed in the apps description. However it has been pointed out that these words in the description are actually tags, meaning that they could be individual words as opposed to ?galaxy s3?. In any case it?s hard to imagine what else the ?s3? could be pointing at but we suppose we should keep the speculation down to a minimum for now. Be sure to check back with us on the 3rd of May for the official details!By Ubergizmo.

Yup, as it turns out that the ?something wonderful? that will be headed onto the Blackberry Playbook is none other than Angry Birds Space. For those who might have forgotten, a while back it seemed that RIM might have let the cat out of the bag a tad early and Angry Birds Space was spotted for the Blackberry Playbook. The app was then pulled leaving us to wonder when would RIM and Rovio make the app available. We guess now?s as good a time as any, right? In any case the app for the Playbook is no different from the other Angry Birds Space found on Android and iOS devices, so if you?re still using the Playbook and you?d like to get your hands on the game, head on down to the Blackberry App World where you will be able to purchase it for $2.99. Still no word on when Angry Birds Space will be arriving on Windows Phone devices, if at all.By Ubergizmo.

While it has been possible to add video links that are playable within Facebook, it was not possible to embed Facebook videos onto other websites i.e. blogs since the social networking website does not provide embed codes like YouTube or Vimeo. However it looks like that could change in the near future. This is thanks to the folks over at Netbooknews who were tipped by their friends at Reqvu about Facebook allowing for the embedding of their videos into external webpages. A function to ?Embed this video? was spotted and it seemed that Facebook even provided the sample code for embedding. Unfortunately it appears that Facebook has since removed that feature (perhaps it was for testing purposes?) but not before a screenshot (pictured above) of how the embedded video would look like has been taken. No word on when Facebook will roll out this feature to the public, but given that it has already been spotted, we?re guessing that the company could be close to making it publicly available.By Ubergizmo.

Earlier today we reported that according to Proview, a settlement was likely to be reached with Apple regarding the dispute over the ownership of the iPad trademark. Perhaps a settlement would be the best move for Apple as according to a Chinese official, it would appear as though the Chinese courts do not believe that the iPad trademark belongs to Apple and could ultimately rule in Proview?s favor if a settlement could not be reached. This was revealed by Fu Shuangjian, the vice minister of the State Administration for Industry and Commerce. He claims that based on the trademark laws on China, the iPad moniker does indeed belong to Proview. The implications could be huge should Apple lose the lawsuit. It might result in an injunction, fines and huge damages that they would be required to pay Proview. The transcription of Fu?s statement made earlier today can be found online here.By Ubergizmo.
